When I started writing this first installment for my Shopping Custom Challenge, I was confuzzled when I was unable to access the Indi Custom Denim website. After doing some super slueth Google searching, I realized that Indi had (gasp!) gone out of business! I'm in a state of mourning since I LOVE my custom trouser jeans, get tons of compliments on them and was planning to order other styles. Alicia Jay from Tall Swag, Krista from Tall Clothing Mall and I all had a moment of mourning together on Twitter when I broke the bad news.
Although Indi is now no more, I still wanted to do a little review since I love my jeans so much and I feel like they illustrate the gloriousness of custom clothing.
As far as the ordering process was concerned, you entered some measurements, answered a bunch of questions about how pants generally fit you and provided details about your body shape including things like picking your "seat shape" from 4 different derriere illustrations - flat, average, prominent, wide/full. (I'm not sure why, but I found these illustrations really amusing)!
The first pair of jeans that arrived were all kinds of wrong - the rise was so high, I felt like I almost could have pulled them up to my chin and the fit in the butt and thighs was loose and baggy. Clearly, I had entered my measurements wrong. The beauty of Indi was that they let you send the jeans back and would send you a whole new pair based on your revised measurements. Thankfully, the second pair was a hit.
|Yep! I'm holding my Isabella Fiore purse the wrong way. I'm such a good poser! (NOT)!|
|I was even able to pick the pockets I wanted!|

|I ordered them just long enough to be able to wear heels but am still be able to wear them with flats too|
Realizing that Indi went under just motivates me even more to keep trucking with my Shopping Custom Challenge because I NEED these custom clothing lines to stay in business!
Next up, my take on the eShakti items I ordered. Unfortunately, I'm not super thrilled with them, but that story is for another post.
